Very few of us have seen a championship ring in person. We hear how the championship rings that professional athletes receive cost thousands of dollars, but it’s hard to truly understand how massive they are. San Francisco Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford posted a photo on Twitter Sunday night that should help put it into perspective.
As you can see, Crawford put his Giants World Series ring on the hand of his 4-month-old daughter Braylyn. And now we know — a World Series ring is probably about the size of a newborn baby’s hand. That’s a lot of diamonds. It almost makes you wonder how someone could lose one in a shoe and find it four years later.
